The U.S. Poker Open continued Wednesday, with the final table of Event #5 on PokerGO and the second $25,000 High Roller of the series playing in the ARIA Poker Room. While USPO leader Stephen Chidwick was absent from yesterday’s final table, he’ll returns to PokerGO on Thursday with the overall chip lead.
That means the British High Roller is in pole position and in a great spot to contend for his third victory of the series in Event #6. Chidwick is also in a tremendous spot to increase his lead at the top of the U.S. Poker Open Championship standings.
Chidwick has had a stranglehold on that leaderboard for what seems like the entire series, but Isaac Haxton and Benjamin Pollak could push themselves into contention with deep $25,000 High Roller runs. Pollak will record his third cash in Event #6, while Haxton will make his second, after finishing on the podium in the $25,000 Mixed Game Championship.
Jason Koon, Brian Green, and Elijah Berg round out the lineup and all three will open their USPO accounts on Thursday. While Green and Berg may be unknown quantities to PokerGO viewers, Jason Koon needs no introduction.
The U.S. Poker Open will stream every day this week and the Event #6 broadcast begins Thursday at 4:00 PM ET. The $25,000 No Limit Hold’em High Roller final table seat draw, along with the player’s chip counts, is provided below:
